Jonathan Klein

Formerly a creative director for the NFL, Jonathan Klein is perhaps best known for helming Pepsi’s universally acclaimed, Cannes Lions-winning web series, Uncle Drew. He also directed Burger King’s “Whopper Detour” which claimed the Titanium Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions, as well as One Show, Clio, Webby and other industry honors. In 2019, he was named the #2 Director worldwide by the Global Creativity Report.

Having started in fashion at Calvin Klein before a short stint in magazine journalism, Jonathan’s brand of smart comedy and thoughtful visual style includes: “Jingle Hoops," the NBA’s most viewed commercial ever; a campaign for the GRAMMYs featuring Lorde and Taylor Swift; and spots for Nissan, ESPN, and Amazon. He’s worked with such notable names as Tom Brady, LeBron James, Tracy Morgan, President Barack Obama and Chewbacca.
